Thought it was about time i put up my other tanks beyond my 46G corner tank elsewhere in this section.
This is my low light 20G.
-Has been setup for about a year now.
-Has the standard 15W light fitting with a Arcadia plant bulb with reflector.
-I don't really fertilize at all other then the occasional bit of potassium.
-It has eco as the substrate which i think has helped keep things alive
-Its all pretty much low light plants (like anything else would live). Vall's, crypts, java moss, some java fern thats hung on since my first tank, and a lotus thing which is doing ok but i'm sure would love more light.
Current tank occupants are 2 oto's, 1 female A.Cacotodies (spelling) and 3 or 4 babies that totally hid from sight for months, there may be more.
Although it has been a great laugh having raising babies over months and month in this tank the raising power costs and a desire to try new things ive got it in my head to convert this to a chinese river tank.
High flow rate with powerhead, white cloud mountain minnows, hillstream loaches. Lots of cobbles, touch of driftwood with a switch to sand as a substrate.
I've been trying to work out the best plants to go with this vision, low light and low temp being the main requirements....
Any help would be appreciated.
But before i rip this down i can appreciate the fact i can grow stuff with bugger all light.
